Kambwili Charged with Unlawful Assembly…as he is set to spend Night in Cells

National Democratic Congress leader Chishimba Kambwili has been charged with unlawful assembly and detained at Luanshya Police Station.

Kambwili who was driven from Lusaka by the police after attempting to report to Copperbelt Police Commissioner Charity Katanga for refusing to accept his request for a postponement of the interrogation.

The Roan lawmaker has been charged in connection with his having addressed AVIC International workers who went to complain to him over alleged poor working conditions.

Kambwili’s lawyer Evaristo Mukonka said Kambwili had met all the conditions for bond but the police decided to detain him.

Mukonka said the Roan lawmaker will appear in court on Friday.

 

The arrest of the NDC leader means he will have to skip court in another case tomorrow.

He has another scheduled court appearance in Lusaka before magistrate Mwaka Mikalile.

    CHISHIMBA Kambwili has questioned why President Edgar Lungu has ‘sneaked’ out of the country for South Africa without the government telling the nation his whereabouts.
    “I am reliably informed that he sneaked out of the country yesterday (Tuesday) with only the ADC (Aide-de-Camp). Now a President cannot leave the jurisdiction of the country without informing the nation. And why should he only go with the ADC?” Kambwili questioned. “He has left out all his aides, no any government official has accompanied him, he has only gone with his ADC and the government has not announced where the President is. You see we cannot run the country as extensions of our own bedrooms.”
    Kambwili said Zambia was governed by laws and rules and that there was no way the President could sneak out of the country to South Africa using taxpayers’ money.
    “Even the challenger [Presidential jet] that he has used is taxpayers’ money. We need to know, we deserve to know why he has gone to South Africa and why he did not announce to the country…so can the Presidential spokesperson or the chief government spokesperson tell the nation what the President has gone to do in South Africa because that is sneaking out of the country,” Kambwili said. “Not even cadres were at the airport to see him off as is usually done. He sneaked out of the country yesterday…they have not told anybody that the President is out of the country. It shows that the President has gone out of the country under very suspicious circumstances.”
    He said there was even an allegation that President Lungu left the country with businessman Valden Findlay.
    Kambwili questioned what Findlay’s role was in the PF government.
    “Even when Prince Harry came, he was among the government officials who took pictures with him [at State House]. And we have seen that wherever the President is, whether local or abroad, he is always with Valden Findlay. Can they tell us the role of Findlay; who pays for his accommodation, who pays for his travels wherever the President goes? We need to know; what is his role in this government because he is neither an official of the party, he is not a member of the Central Committee, he is not a ward chairman, he is not a district chairman?” he asked.
    Kambwili said there was an allegation that the President had gone to meet up with another Zambian businessman in South Africa, who had gone as an advance party through Mozambique.
    “We want to know, where is the President?” asked Kambwili.
    President Lungu’s spokesperson Amos Chanda did not pick up the phone when reached for comment while chief government spokesperson Dora Siliya promised to respond “in a minute” but never did by press time.
    Meanwhile, Kambwili said police on the Copperbelt have detained 11 of AVIC employees that went to his house to complaint about poor conditions of service.
    He said it was now clear that the Zambian government had placed importance on Chinese at the expense of nationals whom he said were being treated as second-class citizens.
    He appealed to Copperbelt police commissioner Charity Katanga to release the AVIC workers who he said have been in detention since Monday without any charge.
    He wondered how police would detain suspects first then investigate the alleged unlawful assembly.

      Did Hon Kambwili address AVIC International workers? From the comments here looks he did. Was the meeting authorised or not. Questions Answers which which should be asked answered by Zambians who went to school and are able to post on Zambia Reports, not just blablablabla… you are a shame to Zambians of good will and foreigners.
